From organic pet food to toxin-free chew toys, you do your best to make your animal’s life as healthy and eco-friendly as your own. When it comes to medical treatment and healthcare for your four-legged friend, an eco-friendly alternative is just as important.
Holistic veterinarians are becoming much more common throughout the US, offering a ‘whole body’ alternative to traditional pet care. Holistic veterinary care addresses all aspects of your pet’s life to prevent sickness and disease and to help your animal live a happy and healthy life without the use of invasive or chemical-based procedures.
